I Am

I am the quiet music in the background
That none can hear
Unless they were listening for it
I am the single drop of rain
That a little girl will brush off her cheek
Without even glancing up at the sky
I am the static that the radio plays
Until the young man in the driver’s seat
Turns it off in disgust
I am the squeak of an old violin
That has yet to be thrown away
For its strings no longer sing 
The way they used to
I am the forgotten teddy bear
Sitting on the top of a dusty bookshelf
Looking down on the bed
In which I used to sleep
And yet I call myself most:
